Prose translation (into Malory-style English) of a Arthurian romance in verse written in medieval Dutch. It tells the story of Sir Perceval's nephew, Morien, son of a princess of the Moors. He comes to Britain on a quest to find his vanished father. After some misunderstanding, he is joined on his quest by Sir Lancelot and Sir Gawain.
Notable for its positive portrayal of an African knight, but also an interesting story, well-told.
I'll be putting up a new part every week. I anticipate six parts.
